The ministry in which we are involved is called “Decide Inside.” It takes place at the Sumter Correctional Institute, a state prison near Bushnell.
We work in the “Youthful Offender” section, which is made up of young men ages 14 through 18. We meet with them weekly, for 12 weeks, attempting to assist them to learn more about God, His plan of salvation, and how they can have a relationship with Him. The curriculum used is from an organization called OneHope. The first six weeks consist of a short DVD presentation and study book. During the second six weeks, we discuss various topics, such as love, relationships, anger, respect, and forgiveness from a biblical perspective. Our prayer is that these young men will make a life-changing decision for Christ that will follow them during their imprisonment and for life. We feel privileged that God allows us to be involved in this ministry, and covet your prayers for God to be working through us and that lives would be changed for eternity.
